Marry the Prince or Stay with Family--That Is the Question: A Perspective of Young Korean Immigrant Girls on Disney Marriages in the United States
Lee, Lena
Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, v34 n2 p39-46 Jun 2009
Although several studies have examined popular culture, the perspectives of young children from various cultures still have not been discussed at length in such studies. In order to listen to these children's voices, this paper focuses on young immigrant Korean girls in the United States. It particularly examines their interpretations of marriage in American popular culture--in this case as marriage presented in Disney animated films. It explores the Korean cultural value of family, which significantly influenced the informants' points of view toward marriage. Finally, the paper provides some suggestions and implications for research on popular culture and young children. (Contains 1 footnote.)
